Warriors men lead from start to finish in win over UMD
Kyle Bauman drained a three-pointer on the Winona State men’s basketball team’s opening possession and it never looked back, defeating Minnesota-Duluth 81-60 at McCown Gymnasium on Saturday.
The Warriors continue to shoot the ball well, connecting on 54.7 percent of their attempts from the floor, and when teamed with a 39-27 rebounding advantage and the best scoring defense in the league, it spelled fifth consecutive win for Todd Eisner’s club.
Winona State (12-10, 11-7 NSIC) jumped out to an early 14-4 lead and built that into a 41-24 cushion at halftime and were in front by 20 with under twelve-and-a-half minutes to play when Riley Bambenek drilled on of his five 3-pointers.
The Warriors posted a season-high 22 assists for the contest, led by a game-high six from Bambenek, who committed no turnovers on the night.
Bambenek poured in 17 points, while Bauman had 19 and added eight rebounds and two blocks for WSU.
